Q. in Illinois if the house next to me is for sale, does the realtor have to have the property surveyed if i request it.
A: Your neighbor most likely will order a survey for the buyer of their property. However, your neighbor (or the buyer or their property) is under no obligation to share that survey with you. The new buyer may purchase the property, aware that the fence encroaches on your property. If you are concerned about an encroachment, and your neighbor will not voluntarily share the survey, you should order a staked survey. I suggest that you contact a lawyer in Macon Illinois to further discuss the concept of adverse possession and the effect of an encroachment.
Q. In a home sale can a real estate agent that is acting as a Dual agent represent the buyer at closing, in state of IL?
A: No. To do so would be considered the unauthorized practice of law.
Q. How do I transfer ownership of my house without a sale?
A: You may transfer any rights you have in the house by way of a quit claim deed. I recommend that you retain an attorney to assist you with this, to ensure it is done properly.
